Who is your resource for?

To make sure your resource appears in the right sections of the site please tell us what grades your resource is relevant to (and if it is a whole school resource or one suitable for special populations).

  1. Choose a 'Phase' that applies to your resource.
  2. Once you have selected the phase, subject listing for that grade will appear alongside.
  3. Scroll through the list and select the subject that applies to your resource.
  4. Select a topic that applies to your resource.
  5. You also have the option to select a sub-topic (this is optional).

Supporting information

Tell us more about your resource. A good title is important, and it should offer a brief summary of your resource. You can then provide more detailed information in the 'notes to users' area. Your notes should include details of what the resource covers, how it could be used in the classroom and any specific instructions on usage (maximum number of characters = 600). Be as descriptive as you like - and don’t worry, you can always go back and change the text if you’re not happy with it.

If your resource relates to a particular event in the calendar (eg Halloween), select the month and event name from the drop-down calendar.


Once you have finished please read the Terms & Conditions and our Privacy Policy. Then click on the 'I agree' and 'finish' button.
